There has been talk, going back to December, that the Cleveland Cavaliers were eager to move second-year guard Dion Waiters, who has struggled to get along with star point guard Kyrie Irving on the court and in the locker room. Teams continue to call the Cavs about Waiters, but as a source told Sporting News on Tuesday there is “nothing imminent there” on a Waiters trade. In fact, one league executive said, “It seems like they are going to keep him.” Despite a 20-33 record, Cleveland is considered a buyer at Thursday's deadline, because the team is eager to make a playoff push in the frightful Eastern Conference. Waiters has been offered for veteran help, the hope being that more experience in the locker room will help ease some of the Cavs' chemistry problems.
